FO: Chocolate Jekylls

This week I finally finished my Chocolate Jekyll Socks. I say "finally" because they have been on the needles since January, but I don't really mind that they took me so long. They were great purse knitting... on the bus, waiting for rides, and such. These also were set aside quite a bit... there was my sweater, a baby blanket, and a baby sweater that all took priority (see, I'm gonna be an aunt soon so I had to kick up the baby knitting).

This pattern, Jekyll & Hyde, was enjoyable. It was easy to memorize and it was still interesting to knit. I realize the actual texture of the sock is difficult to see, but I think it is best described as thermal looking.

I knit these socks because I was wanting some simple yet fun socks to wear with my
ballet flats to work. These totally fit the bill. The yarn I used was Malabrigo Sock and it is wonderful! Super squishy and cozy. I'm looking forward to seeing how it holds up since it is 100% superwash merino wool. I'll let you know!

Since I enjoyed having these socks as I side project I might just cast on another pair... not the same pattern, but again on my double points needles (dpns). For me, knitting socks on dpns is about enjoying the process of knitting a sock. When I cast socks on magic loop and two at a time it is generally cause I just can't wait to get them off the needles and on my feet!

Happy knitting all!

  1. Amazing Emmy. If I made socks that good, I would frame them-not wear them!
